Here’s a look at what crews are doing now to get ready for the winter weather:

Greensboro: Field operation crews began pre-treating major roads and business areas with brine Monday night. Crews will attach plows and salt spreaders to trucks Tuesday morning.

High Point: High Point will brine Monday night but just the main roads. They’ll also have equipment ready for Tuesday to brine.

Winston-Salem: The city will not brine Monday night if it rains. If forecast calls for snow first, they'll brine during the afternoon. Crews will cover city streets, main thoroughfares in the city, then secondary streets that lead to main roads and then residential roads.

Randolph County: Crews started to brine Monday morning and will continue through the day and into Tuesday. It takes two full days to cover the primary roads, interstates and highways.
